Scanner rail stops on return pass and makes a horrible sound wont

Scanner rail stops on return pass and makes a horrible sound, wont do anything until you unplug for a minute but then does the same thing. Screen say's unable to scan copy or send a fax. I paid $500 for this thing when it first came out, seems a waste to throw it out and HP was no help. Mine is doing the same thing. I expanded the silver spring on the left (to end of shaft). That did not solve it but made belt tighter some. Then I drilled hole and used tie wrap to tighten the holder under the carriage, ie to squeeze belt into cartridge. That did not help. Yours is doing same darn things as mine. I lost as to what to do next. Did you fix yours? Steve Fisher South Carolina 864-718-8309

I'm can't see any bad gears and belt is in tact and not damaged. It does not show any signs of wear. Mine only does it in fax mode when it tried to run back to the right. Maybe you and me can figure this out and save some money. Call me if you want. Steve

I have a AL 1655 CS and it stopped working! I've stopped it and started it, changed the cartrige and open and closed dorrs!! It says System Error [L1-00] what next?


L1 or L1-00 indicates Scanner movement failure. The scanner is the part under the glass that lights up and moves back and forth. So if you lift up the feeder so you can see the glass, turn the machine off for a few seconds then back on. Watch the movement of the scanner. It should move right and inch or two then back to the left. If all goes well the copier should come to ready. Lay a piece of paper on the glass and press the print button to watch the scanner movement. If it binds up or does not scan correctly there are 2 possibilities.
1) your scanner lock is engaged and is preventing the scanner from moving. Check the clear plastic dial located under the far left upper side of the copier, near where the paper exits the machine. Make sure it is in the unlocked position.
2) Your scanner rail is dirty and dry. This rail can be seen under the glass towards the back of the copier. The scanner rides on this rail. It is very common for these to get dirty and for the grease to dry up causing the scanner to freeze up on the rail. The glass must be removed and the rail cleaned and lubricated.
Just power off then on the copier to reset.

Scanner mechanism stuck, making loud clicking sound


I've just got this problem after a powercut, whilst it was not being used but on. If you have only had it a few months send it in warranty.
Think I will have to take this apart and see if the scanner cable/ribbon/drive belt is caught on something or been stretched too much and can be replaced at all.
Its like at one end its caught and wont move the scanning head being stuck somehow, caught on something (doubtful tho').

Carriage seems to stutter on the rails (which are clean) when moving from right to left. When it returns it makes a horrible noise. Also getting 86:01 error when trying to print.


check the carriage belt assembly. check the teeth on the motor that drives the belt assembly. you will see belt residue inside the printer. replace the belt and clean the motor drive teeth, this should resolve your issue.

Will not copy


Sounds like a scanner issue, when you make a copy, lift the lid slightly, does the scanner pass by smoothly? if not, it may be obstructed, or it could have a motor problem.
If it an obstruction, you should see it as the scanner moves, turn the machine off then on, this usually causes a scanner pass and reset to home. Look through the glass as it does so to see if it is catching on anything. if it is a foreign object, remove the glass and clean out the optic cavity.
If only one side moves or the scanner is crooked, it has slipped on its cables.
If it just moves in jerky fashion, it could be the motor.

Hope this is of some help.

Fuser problem?


If the fuser lamp is gone faulty the machine will return a fuser error code and wont print, but it will still start loading the paper and shouldn't make any weird sound (the fuser is just an heating lamp). I think in your case the problem is probably caused by the plastic fused inside printer's mechanics. The solution is disassembling the printer, cleaning any plastic residue from the inside, and then mounting the printer back. If done properly this may solve the problem.

cheers
